A disability is an impairment or condition that impacts daily activities, communication and/ or mobility, and has lasted or is likely to last for six months or more.
This issue is probably not their disability!
Looks can be deceiving.
Encourage your registrar to “check their bias”
– Is there something stopping them from seeing the bigger picture, or an alternative diagnosis for this patient?
Think about access issues for investigations e.g. bloods, imaging etc.
Has the registrar done an appropriate examination?
– How can they improve this in practice and/or the home setting?
